The National Leasehold Campaign warmly welcomes today’s launch of the CMA investigation into the leasehold housing market. We will, of course, be happy to work with the CMA to give evidence to support their investigation. For thousands of hard-working families across England and Wales, their dreams of home ownership have turned into a living nightmare with onerous ground rents, stinging permission fees, rocketing service charges and that stomach churning, penny drop moment when you realise that you don’t own a single brick of your property – the only thing you own is the lease and you are a tenant. It’s time for England and Wales to catch up with Scotland and abolish leasehold tenure to the history books where it belongs.
As you know we work tirelessly for ALL leaseholders who are caught up in the complicated leasehold system. If you think we deserve to be nominated for this award please take a moment to complete the nomination process.
We are suggesting the following categories:
TEAM OF THE YEAR – National Leasehold Campaign
